    4.5 starsThe Blurb from the back of the book: “Lady Eleanor Butler was 29 when she first met Sarah Ponsonby, a sensitive retiring girl of 13. Ten years later the two ladies eloped. Amid scenes of scandal and havoc they settled in an idyllic cottage in Llangollen where their unorthodox relationship blossomed, and their generous, civilised way of living became a legend.” They lived together for over 50 years and were only parted by death. The story of Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby has long [...]

    An excellent book about the lives of Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby. Two 18th Century aristocratic Irish women, who ran away to Wales because they wanted to live together.

In a nearby barn, her dear friend Eleanor Butler – aged 39 – was waiting for her, having likewise escaped from her family at Kilkenny Castle. The two women were tracked down by their panicking relatives two days later at Waterford, on the brink of bo [...]

    "It is this dark, this Gothick quality of her mind which will, increasingly, find expression in her taste. And yet what woman of sixty-seven could have a more active and interested mind? For now, in 1806, as her day-book tells us she is interested in many, many things; in fossils; makers of Aeolian harps; geology; underground passages; the choice of a new lama; witchcraft; ghosts; Egyptology; Russian dancing; a lady who purports to lay eggs; snake charmers; Tipoo Sahib; customs of the Moors; sca [...]

    A fascinating look at the lives of the ladies of Plas Newydd, free from embellishment or speculation about their relationship, based on their correspondence and diaries.
